Default Coffee Ground Fountain Pen

This is nothing compared to what a lot of y'all are making, but I'm pretty happy with my newbie results. Coffee grounds, dried and cast in Alumilite, and a PSI fountain pen kit in chrome.

It smelled strongly of coffee while I was making it, but it's odorless after the CA finish. Not really an option to leave it unsealed, though.
